Yes, I read We Begin at the End and recommended it here and elsewhere. Getting it remains a problem library-wise.
The Four Winds - Kristin Hannah … I’d read it, if chosen. I won’t, unless chosen. In effect, I always end up reading Hannah’s books that way: chosen by one of my book clubs. I never dislike her books but neither am I a fangirl. Many of my friends are though.
Anyway, Kirkus expresses my feeling about a Kristin Hannah book in their review of The Four Winds:
The pedantic aims of the novel are hard to ignore as Hannah embodies her history lesson in what feels like a series of sepia-toned postcards depicting melodramatic scenes and clichéd emotions.For devoted Hannah fans in search of a good cry.
